Hello and welcome to just answer
I'm happy to consult you today
I have reviewed your case,its a first degree burn most likely.
you need to do the following things.
1.Apply cold water or ice after regular intervals,soak it in cool water for 15 minutes
2. After soaking,gently dry it with a clean cloth and treat the burn with a skin care product like an antibiotic ointment or aloe vera cream.
3.Cover your thumb with sterile clean cloth or a dry gauze and protect it from air
4.Use over the counter pain killers like ibuprofen or paracetamol or naproxen.
You will be fine within a few hours
can you please tell if there is any skin eruption?
It would be better to use ibuprofen 200mg 4 times a day.It will reduce pain and inflammation as well.
